What is a "good" weight? I'm building my car and I just got the lightened chassis, lightened gear shafts and carbon shock towers. I'm going to weigh mine after I'm done. What's the magic number I should be looking for?

I mean it looks so simple, all they did was drill a few extra holes. Makes you wonder why they didn't do it in the first place.
It may look easy but those things still need to be balanced. Unless you can make some very precise holes, I wouldn't just start drilling on the two speed.

I tried measuring the droop after following the kit setting measurements and I got 3 in the rear and 5 in the front.

Just a quik tip on taking out the motor w/o taking out the belt tensioner is just unscrew the 2 screws on either side of the plate of the belt tensioner so the chassis will flex when you bend it a bit when lifting up the motor. It works for me so I just keep on doing that. just my .02

jscamry: Just get a cheap electric screw driver to do the dirty work. It will make taking the 4 screws off the side plate painless and supremely quick. I got a off-brand one from Wal*Mart that only cost me $5.....yes, $5! And I've had it for three years now and it still works great.

I would prefer taking off those four screws, to purposely flexing my chassis...

What are peoples thoughts on this item:



Since the car is already a little heavy, this is adding weight and higher CG, but mayby the ease of adjustment is worth it.

I added the Kawahara item similar to this to my V1R EVO and really like how much better it was for ease of adjustment.

Anybody try this yet?

You could go with this item to replace the side brace. Will allow the engine to come out easy.



I think the theory is that it will decrease stiffness of the car a little for a little more grip mainly in the rear.
